Re: A better Elbonia

If you have cities named after some characters from Dilbert, why not use more of them?

Re: Breaking Up effects.ruleset

I'm also thinking that building negations in general shouldn't be used for placement. While wonders negating improvements is an obvious exception, I can't really think of a good reason to have buildings, governments, or technologies used to negate effects instead of just making completely separate ...

Re: Breaking Up effects.ruleset

If you can include, then yeah, this is pretty much taken care of.

Re: Ancient Democracy idea

I definitely think there is a role for a government like this in the game.

You did a good job keeping it from being broken, I think. I'd let the tax sliders go out to 80%.

Re: Rule debugging (city walls trade penalty)

So, I tried that. Oddly, it was successful in reducing trade from a non-adjacent whales tile, but a non-adjacent paper tile remained 1-2-2. A distant roads-grassland tile was reduced to 0 trade, a nearby roads-plains tile was left with 1 trade. I think this reduction is occurring before special reso...

Rule debugging (city walls trade penalty)

I wanted to reduce trade by 1 in each non-adjacent tile, if you have city walls* So I put this effect in the effects ruleset. [effect_city_walls_bad_traffic] type = "Output_Penalty_Tile" value = 1 reqs = { "type", "name", "range" "Building", "Ci...

Re: City walls become obsolete!

Maybe lesser of +2 and +100% defense? That way it's overwhelming in ancient combat but a nice perk in modern.

Re: new and I have never won a game except spaceship

Shields are the physical production - the stuff you're building, like units and buildings and wonders. You started with a very odd situation - extremely high technology level, science upkeep (I've never played a variant with science upkeep), and yet no cities to support the upkeep. No wonder things ...

List of rulesets?

Is there a list of notable rulesets besides those installed with the game? What are their goals, how extensive are they, etc.? I don't see a list, here or on the wiki. I have a rather low bar for notability, as long as it's interesting or well-done in some way - if you'd think 'Hmm, I'd like a rules...

Re: Limit movement on rails

That particular rule only really makes sense for rail or maglev. It'd be up to the ruleset maker to ensure balance, yes, but I don't see why it would be all THAT hard to do. If they allow 15 move fragments they're already committed to roads being utterly bananas. Then they can choose the Railway Mov...
